I have a mild sting in my urethra, but no pain during urination and I urinate normally and there is no discharge either. Should I be worried?

I have a mild sting in my urethra, but no pain during urination and I urinate normally and there is no discharge either. Should I be worried?

Probably not, but...: If your stinging only occurs occasionally, you're not sexually active, or taking spice foods, that is ok as long as having a normal ua. But for sexually active men with frequent recurrent stinging, std needs to be considered since many std-infected men can be free of symptoms. Yet, nice to know: every life event always presents its self as a pattern of full spectrum, from none to extreme severe. ...Read more

What can I do for my stinging urination without going to a doctor?

What can I do for my stinging urination without going to a doctor?

Not much: If you are a sexually active female, this could be a urinary tract infection. There are myths that cranberry juice and other at-home remedies treat this, but the only way to get rid of the infection is to get an antibiotic from your doctor. Even if it is not a uti, you most likely need diagnosis and treatment from a physician to get rid of the pain. Drink lots of water to help until you see doctor. ...Read more

I had sex for the first time and now it stings when I urinate. Is that normal?

No, possibly UTI/STD: Hopefully you used two forms of protection, 1) hormonal to lower risk of pregnancy (unless you want to become pregnant at 16yo) 2) condom to lower risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) & pregnancy. Painful urination can be due to urinary tract infection (which is why it's important to pee after sex) or STDs. I can't speak for Canada but in States, no OTC antibiotics so go see your FamilyDoc ...Read more
